Which Maybach does Edmunds recommend?
Considering that both the Maybach S 560 and S 650 are identically outfitted, your decision will come down to power and performance. The S 560 has more power than most drivers will ever need and it also benefits from all-wheel drive. The rear-wheel-drive-only S 650's price premium isn't worth it unless you want the S 650 purely for bragging rights.
Edmunds' Expert Review
The Maybach is not a driver's car, but this big, heavy sedan steers and handles more sharply than you'd expect. The twin-turbo V12 delivers effortless and potent acceleration from any speed. It's slightly detached-feeling but quite capable.
This is one of the world's most exquisitely comfortable cars, particularly for backseat occupants who are treated as royalty. The Maybach provides endless seat and climate control adjustments, a pleasant ride and a hushed demeanor. If you can't get comfortable in this car, you're doing something wrong.
Beyond its vast backseat space, the cabin is extremely configurable, from independent interior lighting front and rear to choice of scents. It's all accessible via the center screen, which itself can be interfaced multiple ways. The doors open very wide. Visibility is a mixed bag, but the cameras help a lot.
There's ample in-cabin storage for every conceivable type of small item, but larger items get short shrift. The trunk is small, and there's no pass-through or seat-folding due to the cocooned, first-class aircraft-style back seats. This kind of transport assumes you have everything you need at your destination.
A dizzying array of entertainment and safety features are provided. The fully configurable digital dashboard is second to none, as is the remarkable audio system. Likewise, the driver assistance features are consistently among the most well-executed out there.
